    • Anticipated futures? Knowing the heritage of drift matter 

      Petursdottir, Thora (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-06-06)
      What might heritage in and of the Anthropocene look like? This article ponders this question by drawing on archaeological encounters with assemblages of drift matter (seaborne debris) in Norway and Iceland. Here, drift matter manifests evidence of both the relentlessly amassing material heritage of the Anthropocene and deep legacies of local engagement with this fluctuating resource. The tensions ...

To reveal the content of and changes in the Norwegian Labour Party in relation to these two variables, it is necessary ...

    • Armaments and ornaments: mate-guarding and the evolutionary roots of religion 

      Czachesz, Istvan (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Preprint; Manuskript, 2018-09-13)
      This article explores the connection between sexual selection and religion, locating the origins of religious behavior in mate guarding after the transition to terrestrial life in <i>Homo erectus</i> 1.8 million years ago. An important consequence of the transition was the emergence of a polygynous, multiple-family social structure, which gave rise to mate guarding as a successful strategy. Further, ...

It is ...
    • Å skrive om fortidens samiske mennesker 

      Rasmussen, Siv (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Hva ville fortidens samer si dersom de kunne lese det som er skrevet om dem? Ville de kjenne seg igjen i beskrivelsene, og ville de føle seg forstått? Eller ville de riste på hodet og si: – Nei, denne forfatteren vet jo ingenting om vårt egentlige liv. Vi forklarte jo dette for han presten som var her, men han har misforstått fullstendig.
    • Beyond Presentism: Heritage and the Temporality of Things 

      Bangstad, Torgeir Rinke (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-03-27)
      Heritage is often seen as a symptom of a temporally disjointed and all-pervasive present which shapes the pasts it requires to make up for the failures of linear, modern and progressive history. As a consequence, the pasts in heritage are often regarded as the result of unidirectional processes of attributing value to largely compliant materials. This article explores the constitutive role of materials ...
    • Bilder i bruk Samuli Paulaharjus fotografier i dokumentasjonens og illustrasjonens tjeneste 

      Aarekol, Lena; Ryymin, Teemu (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2006)
      Since the late 1970s, Norwegian historians have debated the standing of photographs in historical research. Efforts have been made to establish photographs as sources, not merely illustrations in historical narratives. The present article discusses the use of photographs taken in Northern Norway in the 1920s and 1930s by the Finnish author Samuli Paulaharju, best known for his research on Finnish ...
    • Blant restene av Retiro: Forfall og kulturminner 

      Farstadvoll, Stein (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2016)

These nuances shed new light on how dilapidated things shape our experience of the recent past. The discussion is based on Retiro, ...
    • Boathouse Excavation at Skonsvika 

      Nilsen, Gørill; Wickler, Stephen (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2011)
      The remains of both prehistoric and historic period boathouses are visible in the landscape as collapsed walls of turf and rock or stacked rocks with an openended rectangular outline. These structures are located along present and former shorelines, river and stream banks, lakes and other bodies of water. Their openings usually face the water to facilitate boataccess.

      Hansen, Poul Henning Gustaf (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2014)
      Vilka bokläsarna var under slutet av 1800-talet är höljt i dunkel. Denna undersökning utgår från ett unikt källmaterial från ett kommersiellt lånebibliotek i 1880-talets Lund, som kan visa på vilka böcker som lånades ut och vilka låntagarna var.

    • Bonde og borgerkrig - Lokalkonflikter og de norske innbyrdesstridene 

      Grohse, Ian Peter (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Historians have traditionally treated peasant unrest in late twelfth- and early thirteenth-century Norway as part of a wider challenge to royal authority, as kings struggled to suppress political adversaries and rival claimants to the throne. This article seeks to shed greater light on this assumed correlation by analysing changing patterns of peasant mobilization. To do so, it proposes a terminological ...
    • Brodtkorbneset and Steintjørna: Two Hearth-Row Sites in Pasvik, Arctic Norway 

      Olsen, Bjørnar Julius (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2019)
      During the Viking Age and the early medieval period, hearth row sites became a distinct feature of Sámi settlements over the vast interior region of northern Fennoscandia. Consisting of large, rectangular hearths organized in a linear pattern, these sites represent a new way of organizing domestic space and also reflect new environmental preferences. In this paper, the author gives an overview ...
    • Buying and Borrowing Books: Book Consumption In Late Nineteenth-Century Sweden 

      Hansen, Poul Henning Gustaf (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-07-09)
      Who read what in the late nineteenth century Swedish society? What books were available in the bookshops and the libraries, and what books were the most popular? This study aims to offer preliminary answers to questions like these, based on sales’ and borrowers’ ledgers from three of the most common types of literary institutions of the time; a parish library, a bookshop, and a commercial lending ...
    • Caring for the dead? An alternative perspective on Sámi reburial 

      Svestad, Asgeir (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-04-29)
      This article is an effort to critically discuss Sámi repatriation and reburial practice based on the analysis of five repatriation cases. Since the seminal repatriation (and burial) of the skulls of Somby and Hætta in Gávvuonna/Kåfjord in 1997, and the more recent reburial of 94 skeletons in Njauddâm/Neiden in 2011, a precedent seems established in Norway that allows the unconditional reburial of ...
    • Climatic changes cause synchronous population dynamics and adaptive strategies among coastal hunter-gatherers in Holocene northern Europe 

      Jørgensen, Erlend Kirkeng; Pesonen, Petro; Tallavaara, Miikka (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-03-16)
      Synchronized demographic and behavioral patterns among distinct populations is a well-known, natural phenomenon. Intriguingly, similar patterns of synchrony occur among prehistoric human populations. However, the drivers of synchronous human ecodynamics are not well understood. Addressing this issue, we review the role of environmental variability in causing human demographic and adaptive responses. ...
